The boats are being built to the X12 design under a technology transfer arrangement with Indonesia's PT Lundin (North Sea Boats), which secured a contract to supply 18 boats to the BN and the Bangladesh Coast Guard in 2014. The contract is valued at IDR75 billion (USD6 million), according to Indonesian media reports. IHS Jane's reported in November 2014 that this contract also has an option clause for 10 more boats.

The fully composite X12 design is based on PT Lundin's X15 patrol boat concept, itself derived from the Swedish Combat Boat 90 (CB90) concept. The use of advanced composites in constructing the high-speed patrol boats to Bureau Veritas classification rules will be a first for DEW.

PT Lundin's X12 design (what is perhaps a new monohull design) is being built in two variants for Bangladesh - a 'combat boat' version for the navy and a full cabin variant for the coastguard. PT Lundin confirmed to IHS Jane's that two X12 craft for the Bangladesh Coast Guard were completed earlier this year at its facility in Banyuwangi, Indonesia.

Indonesian shipyard completes contract to supply 18 high-speed boats to Bangladesh
16 September 2019

As part of the contract's technology transfer clause, two of the vessels under the contract were built in Banyuwangi, Indonesia, while the remaining 16 vessels were constructed at the Bangladesh Navy-owned Dockyard and Engineering Works in collaboration with Indonesian engineers.

The vessels are based on PT Lundin's X15 patrol boat concept, which in turn derives its design from the Royal Swedish Navy's Combat Boat 90 (CB90) fast patrol craft. It has an overall beam of 3.5 m, has a length of 11.7 m, draws 0.84 m of water, and displaces 10.2 tonnes when fully loaded.
